This exercise is based on my reading of Nahum as (perhaps) an example of satire. After show the students a clip from the Onion from Youtube, I ask them to imagine what a satirical prophet might look like.

This worked well. The class had a great discussion. Several students found the satirical prophetic possibility compelling. Others preferred the more traditional interpretations. They were reading and thinking about the text, so I was pleased.
